Aaron Ramsdale went wild after Mo Salah’s latest penalty miss before saving a point for Arsenal amid a frantic finale at Anfield.
The Gunners looked set to take a big step towards the Premier League title when they stormed into a 2-0 lead inside the first half-hour thanks to goals from Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus.
Salah pulled a goal back before half-time and then had a golden opportunity to make it 2-2 from the penalty in the second half. However, the Egyptian star did even test Ramsdale as he slotted his spot-kick wide, his second miss in a row, with the Gunners stopper celebrating wildly.

As it turned out, Liverpool did grab a point through substitute Roberto Firmino. And the Reds would have won had it not been for two incredible last-gasp saves from Ramsdale, who once again underlined his status as one of the Premier League’s best.
After the game, fans flocked to social media to praise the former Sheffield United man, with many saying it is time he replaces Jordan Pickford as England's number one.
“The older I get, the fewer things I understand. Amongst them is the mystery of how Ramsdale isn’t England,” said one. “England number 1,” declared another.
Another fan praised Ramsdale and Arsenal, posting: “That performance reminded me of Thibaut Courtois's against Liverpool in the Champions League final last season. Terrific, quick, instinctive. He singlehandedly kept Arsenal in that game. We've got to give it to this Arsenal side, they've proved us all wrong.”
Meanwhile, talkSPORT presenter and Arsenal fan Laura Woods tweeted: “Mental, mental match. Ramsdale incredible. Never over at Anfield. Don’t tweet too soon etc etc. But wow.”
Speaking immediately after the match, Ramsdale told Sky Sports: “I’ve enjoyed playing today. There’s no better games to be playing in than these that mean so much to both teams.
“Unfortunately, we couldn’t get the three points but at least my saves helped us out. One point is a lot better than none. We’ll digest it over the next few days.”
